The latest film I have watched ...

The Lady in the van is a rather humorous film based on a true story of Alan Bennett's friendship with an eccentric homeless woman  (a former gifted pianist and novice nun) whom he  allowed to park her Bedford van in the drive way of his Camden Town temporarily (which ultimately turned into an expected fifteen year period). 
The role of this rather inconvenient  guest is played by Maggie Smith, whose interpretation is second to none with Alex Jennings in the role of Bennett being equally outstanding.

There were times throughout the film in which I didn't know whether to laugh or cry especially those in which people's pre-judgemental ideas in regards to people who temporarily find themselves out in the open surfaced, but as a whole the film is worth being seen, if for nothing else at least for the main characters' interpretations.
